  *** HCI Community Service Design Contest ***

  Addison Wesley Publishers is sponsoring a 
  User Interface Design Contest 
  in connection with the publication of:

     Designing the User Interface: 4th edition
     Ben Shneiderman & Catherine Plaisant

  The Challenge
  Students are asked to create a Web site to help 
  a campus, community, neighborhood, healthcare, 
  philanthropic, museum, or educational organization. 

  The Goal
  By engaging students in the challenges and rewards 
  of community service students gain a valuable real-world 
  experience and make a difference in their communities. 
  Enter the Contest
  Instructors of Fall 2004 courses in Human-Computer 
  Interaction, user interface design, Web usability, and 
  related courses in the U.S. and Canada are invited to 
  participate.  Students can compete individually, in teams, 
  or as a class (that's up to you), to work with these 
  non-profit organizations building and improving their Web sites. 

  Each instructor will select a winning entry for each course 
  section and submit a 500-word description containing the URL 
  of the student work during November 5-15, 2004.  Each submitting 
  team will get their choice of three books from the Addison-Wesley 
  book list.

  Then the 5-member review panel will select the best of the group
  for review by Ben Shneiderman and Catherine Plaisant.  They
  will choose the winner and arrange to appear for a guest lecture
  in the class of the winning team during the first two weeks
  of December 2004.
